Today on our phone lines, most of the calls are from women asking if abortion is still legal in Ohio.
Last night the Ohio state legislature passed a bill banning abortion when a fetal heartbeat is detected, usually around 6 weeks. Today, they'll likely pass a ban on abortion at 20 weeks.
Both of these bans are an affront to the rights and dignity of women in Ohio.
What can you do? Call Governor Kasich! Tell him that banning abortion endangers women's health. Call at 614-466-3555.
